Short Description

This is a robust and easy-to-use table top scanning electron microscope for visualization of surface properties at higher resolution and deeper focus depth than achievable by light microscopy. The image is generated with back-scattered electrons induced by an electron beam of 15 keV.

Sample preparation is straightforward since it does not require coating with a conductive layer. The biological material can be frozen in liquid nitrogen. Alternatively, it can be chemically fixed and critical point-dried.
